A Day in the Life of a Summer Preview Student

A Day in the Life of a Commuting Summer Preview Student

As a Summer Preview student, you spend mornings and afternoons in your seminar of choice. Lunch is served in the Fresh Food Company at Warren Towers, which offers a large assortment of cuisines for all tastes, including vegetarian and vegan options. The dining staff can also accommodate food allergies or other dietary restrictions.

After classes, you participate in fun, organized afternoon activities that give you a chance to socialize with your new friends and peers while introducing you to Boston and to Boston University. See the Schedule of Social Events for an idea of the exciting activities we plan. Commuter students are also invited to attend evening activities. If you choose to stay for an evening activity, dinner will be provided in Warren Towers.

The schedule below will give you a good idea of what your days will look like.
